Report: DeAndre Yedlin receives work permit for move abroad

The final hurdle in DeAndre Yedlin’s path to Europe appears to have been cleared.

The Tottenham-Hotspur-bound Seattle right back has been approved for a United Kingdom work permit, The People reported and MLSSoccer.com confirmed on Sunday, and is likely headed for a January move to the English capital.

UK work permit issues have snagged American players in the past — forward Juan Agudelo had his application rejected late last year — and Yedlin also applied for a Latvian European Union visa through his grandmother’s heritage.

You can read the full report from The People here.
